If you’re in the market for an Engagement Ring, then you’ve come to the right spot.
I’m going to show you 7 styles of Engagement Ring Mountings that always work!
They won’t fail to impress!
That is, unless she has only one specific style in mind, then you’re better off to buy that piece! :)
These styles below are Popular, Sleek, Modern and Dazzling. They will show off a Diamond the best! Make it stand out and get noticed.
Keep it Simple, Dainty, Slim, but Beautiful and Sparkly! That’s your best bet!
So let’s get to it, the 7 Best Styles of Engagement Rings that are sure to please, and almost always a sure fire way to get a “YES” to that proudly proclaimed statement “Will You Marry Me?“
Here we go…
1) TIFFANY ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Tiffany Engagement Rings are the most popular ring in the world!
That’s because it’s Simple, Classy, Elegant, never goes out of Style, and highlights the Diamond, no matter what size, better than any other mounting.
It really makes a powerful punch!
And the great thing about this ring… It’s the most inexpensive mounting there is! You really can’t go wrong with it.
I LOVE the Tiffany Band and highly advise it. I also suggest purchasing 14kt White Gold or Platinum (versus Yellow Gold), because it won’t add any color into the stone. A White Mounting makes a White Diamond “POP” and look awesome and bright!
Take a look at different Tiffany Style Mountings below. They are a win-win in just about any situation!
2) PAVE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Pave Engagement Rings are where small Diamonds are set close together in the mounting and held in place by little prongs or beads. Like so…
Pave is stunning and adds a lot of pizzazz and sparkle to a Solitaire without taking away from the center focal point.
I love their look. They are Clean, Modern, and there are so many wonderful designs and styles.
See some cool Pave examples below…
3) HALO ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Halo Engagement Rings are beautiful. They are usually set up with Pave Diamonds that circle around the center stone. As so…
They really aid in making the center stone look larger! And they work with just about any shape of Diamond as well (Princess Cut, Pear Cut, Oval…)
Some rings even have Double Halos, which are cool as well.
See some examples of different Halo Mountings, they are beautiful pieces. :)
4) CHANNEL SET ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Channel Set Engagement Rings are where the stones are set flush to the mounting, and held in place by the walls of a channel. Take a look at the Princess Cuts down the side of this Engagement Ring below…
Channel Sets are ultra sleek and very smooth. They won’t catch on Clothing, Sweaters, Fibers or Hair!
I really like the look of Channel Set Stones, especially when set in adjoining Wedding Bands and Anniversary Bands.
See some great rings below that have Channel Set Diamonds. They look great and are a joy to wear! :)
5) CATHEDRAL STYLE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Cathedral Style Engagement Rings are Wider Solitaire Mountings that generally rise up on the sides of the stone to lift it up or protect it.
They are incredible when used with a larger Diamond like 1.00 Carat or bigger.
In fact, they are one of my favorite mountings! Like the one shown below…
These rings rock! You can’t get much cleaner than a wide smooth surface. I like to see round stones set in Cathedral Styles with rounded edges, they tend to soften up the appearance and really make the diamond look awesome and balanced.
Just don’t set your stone in a band that is wider than the stone, it will make it look small and get lost in the setting. The diamond should always be a tad bigger, unless you really want to protect the entire stone, like in the last example below…
6) BEZEL SET ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Bezel Set Engagement Rings are great if you want a really clean, smooth look. In Bezel Sets, the Diamond is often totally encased in a rim of metal that wraps around the entire stone (no prongs to get caught). It’s one of the most secure types of mountings you could buy. See below…
The biggest problem with Bezel Set Stones is the fact that they cover up some of the Diamond and tend to make it look much smaller than it really is. :(
Plus, they also tend to block out light (and sparkle) and will get dirty quicker. You’ll have to keep the bottom of the Diamond ultra clean so it doesn’t build up Soaps, Shampoos, Lotions and the such.
Tension Set Stones are a little bit different. Tension Sets are where the Diamonds are held in place by two sections of the mounting, usually opposite sides.
Tension Sets are Cool and Popular, but it also leaves some of the outside stone exposed (The Girdle), making it easier to bump it, knock it, and even chip it!
You just have to be more careful with Tension Set Diamonds and get them checked and cleaned often! You wouldn’t want to lose your stone!
See some wonder examples of both mountings below…
7) 3 STONE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
3 Stone Engagement Rings are where the ring generally has only 3 main Diamonds. And often, the center stone is larger than the two side stones.
However, you will find a lot of different styles out there. Some will have round stones on the side, others may have Baguettes (like the Tapered Baguettes shown below), and some may have Pear Shapes or even Triangle Shaped Stones. They all work and all look cool. They bring focus to the masterpiece!
Some mountings are more elaborate than others and may also have a few more side stones down the band, but they usually always will have 3 main stones in the center.
